International good practices in rural development – New Rural Development Paradigm 2



Századvég was established in 1993 as an intellectual workshop of the young generation that played an active role in the political changes of 1989-1990 in Hungary. The founders’ aim was to create an intellectual and professional base to provide reliable support for Hungarian opinion leaders in a period of social and economic transition.

In the 30 years since then, the world around us has not become less controversial, but it has accelerated considerably, flooding us with an almost unimaginable amount of possibilities and impulses. As complication has increased, so has problem complexity, while we have to form opinions on more and more abstract and relatively distant issues.

Századvég’s mission is to help you see clearly so that you can make better decisions. And good decisions require two things: clear objectives and substantial information.

We work to learn and understand Hungarian and international economic and social processes, and thus provide useful and understandable knowledge to decision-makers, whether they are corporate, governmental or private.

“In our fast-changing world, good decisions require high-quality and relevant data.”

Kinga Kenyeres
Chief Executive Officer

Latest reports

In 2023, the volume of Hungarian gross domestic product (GDP) fell slightly by 0.7%, while growth is likely to remain subdued in the following years. We expect Hungarian economic output to grow by 2.7% in 2024 and 3.4% in 2025. This year and next will be marked by a slow recovery process.

According to the March 2024 survey of Századvég Konjunktúrakutató, household economic sentiment deteriorated by 1.9 index points, while business economic expectations decreased by 1.1 index points from the previous month. Thus, the household index, measured on a scale of -100 to +100, weakened to -14.8, while the business index to -12.9. The March survey shows a marked positive change in that households are less worried about job losses in the next six months than a month earlier. In the business sector, the largest negative change from February to March was in expectations for future exchange rate movements.

Project Europe

In the first half of 2016, the Századvég Foundation conducted a public opinion poll survey covering all 28 European Union Member States, with the aim to analyse the opinions of EU citizens regarding the issues that most affect the future of the EU.

In a unique way, Project 28 conducted the widest possible survey of 1,000, that is a total of 28,000 randomly selected adults in each country. Gaining an understanding of society’s sense of prosperity and mapping the population’s attitudes towards the performance of the European Union, the migration crisis and the increasing terrorism were among the most important goals of the analysis. Following the surveys in 2017, 2018 and 2019, on behalf of the government, the Századvég Foundation has been conducting the research under the name of Project Europe since 2020, which continued to reflect on the topics that most dominated the European political and social discourse.
